Call for Papers
Third International Workshop on Middleware for Large Scale Distributed Systems (MiDiS-2013)

To be held in conjunction with:
The Eighth International Conference on P2P, Parallel, Grid, Cloud and
Internet Computing (3PGCIC-2013)

The third edition of the International Workshop on the Middleware of Large
Scale Distributed Systems, MiDiS-2013 is dedicated to the dissemination and
evaluation of original contributions to the architectures, methods, techniques,
protocols, components, services and tools related to the Middleware of Large
Scale Distributed Systems (LSDS) with special emphasis on large P2P, Cloud,
Grid, and Web-based systems.
Middleware solutions for LSDS aim to respond to high requirements of large
scale distributed applications related to performance, flexibility,
extensibility, portability, availability, reliability, safety, security, trust,
and scalability, in the context of high number of users, and large geographic
distribution of heterogeneous hardware and software resources. The solutions
used in the design, implementation, and deployment of systems with such
capabilities are based on monitoring, scheduling, optimization, sharing,
balancing, discovery, and synchronization methods and techniques that are
continuously improved. New services and functionality are added to the
middleware to ease the development of new and highly demanding applications
with low cost and high performance. New architectures and policies are designed
to incorporate solutions for the management of data, resources, tasks, and
applications, ensure fault tolerance, accounting, service on demand, and other
functions required by user communities to operate effectively a shared services
environment. All these topics challenge today researchers, due to the strong
dynamic behavior of the user communities and of resource collections they use.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an open forum for researchers from
academia and industry to present, discuss, and exchange ideas, results, and
expertise in the area of middleware solution for large scale distributed
systems. The workshop also aims at stimulating synergies between Grid, P2P,
Cloud, and Web-based developer communities.

Topics of interest
The focus of this workshop is on new architectures, methods, techniques,
protocols, components, services and tools related to the Middleware of Large
Scale Distributed Systems (LSDS). These may include, but are not limited to the
following topics:
Architectural solutions for Large Scale Distributed Systems (Grid, Cloud, P2P,
Models and techniques for data intensive computing
Protocols for High performance communication in LSDS
Monitoring and Control
Distributed resource management in Middleware for LSDS
Scheduling and meta-scheduling
Mapping, scheduling and synchronization
Workflow management
Distributed load balancing
Management of high data volumes
Data storage and retrieval
Data summarization and aggregation
Fault-tolerance and replication
Optimization techniques for distributed systems
Performance evaluation and prediction
Self-organized distributed systems
Confidentiality, integrity, trust, anonymity in LSDS
Intrusion detection and prevention, spam detection
LSDS development tools
LSDS environments and platforms

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers not more than six
pages (CPS proceedings manuscripts: two column, single-spaced), including
figures and references, using 10 font size, and number each page. You can find
instructions for authors, at the following web page:

Prepare your paper in PDF file and submit it electronically to the 3PGCIC-2013
online submission system at:

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two or more independent referees of
the program committee of MiDiS-2013 Workshop and accepted on the basis of their
scientific merit, originality, technical soundness, clarity of exposition, and
relevance to the Workshop topics. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in
preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification
of acceptance. Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Conference
Publishing Services (CPS) and archived in the Digital Library.
